In today's episode, I talk about parent expectations for relatives when it comes to dog and child interactions. My friend shared a dramatic incident with me that she saw online between a set of parents and grandparents. The woman asked, "Am I in the wrong if I ask my in-laws to keep their dog away from our toddler?"
Family dynamics can be difficult, but it's important that we set everyone up with appropriate expectations for dog and child dynamics. Before families spend time with their relatives, it's best to discuss dog and child safety and management strategies ahead of time so that there is less tension during their holiday together.
